King's Arms, Oxford Jan 15, 2017
A traditional pub in an university city with a history dating back to 1607. Owed to its location, you'll see a lot of students, university staff and tourists. It's rather the place to have a meal, sit over a book or have a chat with some friends than the place you would go to to see a band. I also didn't remember seeing too many TV screens or any events advertised.

Kitchen includes pub classics as well as modern interpretations, The blue cheese salad was great and I was also delighted by the good choice of real ales (mostly Young's). I just found is confusing that there was a different counter for ordering food which was not the bar.

Oxford pub with a view Jul 12, 2012
Built in 1607, The King's Arms is reputedly the oldest standing pub in Oxford. The aroma of 400 years of spilt beer and vomit tends to cling to these old pubs, and The King's Arms is no exception. This is a minor quibble though compared to the many reasons to like The King's Arms (such as free wifi, a choice of bars and rooms, decent food).

The thing I like most about this pub are the tables on Parks Road that look out across Broad Street. Very few bars in Oxford have a front outdoor area, where you can sit, drink and people watch during the middle of the day. And none offer the same vista as The King's Arms, one that includes the Sheldonian Theatre and Radcliffe Camera.
